Excerpt from The Junior Hymnal
But few of the hymns and tunes found in this collection are new, and even these are not presented as musical novelties. Some selections were general favorites more than a century ago, and all, we believe, are examples of dignified hymns and simple tunes suitable for use by our youth. The youngest children easily learn and greatly enjoy the well-known and ennobling compositions, both ancient and modern, if proper intelligence is used in their selection and direction.
The light and trivial jingles and ditties which ﬂood the bookstalls triﬂe with the understanding and appreciation of children. They always result in a vitiated taste, and tend to exclude from our youth, particularly susceptible to their inﬂuence, hymns of the greatest educational and devotional value. The compilers of this collection have yielded too much rather than too little to cur rent demand.
